Rodney Cromwell makes breezy lo-fi synthpop, that sits somewhere between indie and synthpop. The debut album 'Age of Anxiety' combines an pop-sensibility with Krautrock rhythms, melodic bass lines and sounds made by toy instruments and vintage synths such as moogs and ARPs. His songs explore themes including romantic despair, love loss and post-millennial tribulation but still remain positive and uplifting.
Hailing from Catford, Rodney Cromwell is the project of Adam Cresswell, founding member of Peel endorsed indie-folktronica band SALOON (Darla Records / Track & Field) and one half of acclaimed electronic two-piece ARTHUR & MARTHA (Happy Robots).
The debut album found crossover appeal gaining Cromwell support from Malcolm Holmes (OMD) and Rusty Egan (Visage) as well as media coverage from NME, Electronic Sound, Huffington Post and Steve Lamacq and Gideon Coe on BBC 6 Music and on RNE3 in Spain. At the end of 2015 Rodney Cromwell featured in 25 'Best of' lists and was named 'Most Promising New Act' by The Electricity Club. 'Barry was an arms dealer' featured in the 2015 Official Festive 50 on Dandelion Radio. More details found on our press coverage page.
